Special Limited-Time Offer

Do you have a talented young actor but no idea how to help them?

I have an online course to help you!

I know what it’s like to want to help your kid achieve their dream of being a professional actor, but literally know nothing about “the business.” When my daughter Dove Cameron and I came to Los Angeles when she was 14, we had no idea where to even start.

So I have designed THREE online courses for parents:
  1. An introductory course to cover the basics…
  2. A more advanced course for families who are already started on their journey…
  3. And a SUPER COURSE combining both of those signature courses PLUS two mini courses on safety and family dynamics, priced to reward parents who are ready to really commit to learning everything they can to support their kid’s dream

The best part? There’s no risk.

If you think there’s a chance Getting Your Child into Acting or Child Star: How to Get into Hollywood can help you… give them a try!

Take a full 60 days to use the material, and if you don’t feel completely satisfied, email bonnie@bonniejwallace.com ANY TIME during the 60 days after your purchase, and I’ll happily give you a full refund. No hard feelings.

What is it worth to cut through months or even years of frustration because you have a much better grasp of how things work in the entertainment industry?

It costs an average family about $5,000/month to live in Los Angeles. WASTING EVEN TWO MONTHS because you are confused about how to most effectively pursue a course of action COULD COST YOU AT LEAST $10k.

AND your child’s finite window of opportunity.

What is it worth to know you are supporting your child’s career with genuine guidance?

I wish this education had been available when I came to LA with my daughter Dove nine years ago, but I am very pleased to be able to offer up my hard-won experience and learning to you in these online courses. Hollywood is challenging enough even when you know what you’re doing! And even though no one can promise that your kid will be a star, you CAN shorten the learning curve and give your kid a serious edge on the competition. Right from your own home.

The other thing I wish is that we’d gotten started earlier!

Dove was 14 when we arrived in LA, and most of her peers had a big head start on us. What are you waiting for? Decide which course (or courses) makes the most sense for you, and begin your own Hollywood Journey today.  

What are you waiting for? See you in the videos! 🙂

Warmly,

Bonnie
